Application April 28, 1937, Serial No. 139,397
17Claims. (Cl. 40—126)
This invention relates to a new and improved
method of making articles from blanks of fold
able material and more particularly, the inven
tion pertains to a new method of cutting and
scoring a blank of foldable material whereby in
tegrally connected sections thereof may be folded
or moved to position in different planes and at
the same time, maintain intact the integral con
nection between the sections.
10
The invention herein set forth has many di
verse uses and is not, therefore, to be limited to
the display devices ‘herein illustrated since the
or pasted together in the built updevice result
ing from the well known method of manufacture
above mentioned.
By my improved method of manipulation, I am
able to obtain effects impossible of attainment by
the old method above described. One, and prob
ably the most apparent effect which I am able to
obtain, is the bringing into visible position upon
either side of the blank from which ‘the display
deviceis formed, portions of the reverse face to 10
that being viewed by an observer. Such a result
is impossible of attainment by the old and well
invention has been employed by me in the forma
known method afore-mentioned.

Although, as above stated, my invention is

which are glued or pasted to the members which
they serve to connect. Furthermore, after such
storing and shipping, and moves readily to its set
up or display position, it highly recommends itself 2
to such use.

A still further result which I am able to ob

While the desired effects obtained by my in~ except for the manner in which the device may

35
known manner above described, the necessary die
cutting and gluing operations attendant thereto,
are expensive and render such method prohibitive
in the. construction of certain articles, the manu
facturing cost of which must be kept within cer
40
tain limitations.
I have discovered, as will hereinafter become
apparent, a new and novel method of operation
or manipulation of cardboard, paper and in fact
any foldable material, whereby certain articles of
the afore-mentioned type, i. e., in which there are
45
two or more sections or display areas disposed in
spaced planes when the device is in its extended
position and which, when the device is in its
knocked down position, will lie ?at with all of its
sections in a single plane, may be constructed
50 from a single blank of such material.
Further
more, in the practicing of my method, I employ
no gluing or pasting operations, the article re
sulting from my method having all of its com
ponent, parts integrally connected as distin- ‘
55 guished from the several parts which are glued
has no reverse side or face.
For example, my
device may be printed or otherwise ornamented
upon both of its faces and either face displayed 35
to view at will. Such a method of use is not
possible with any other display device with which
I am familiar.
_
Many other advantages will become apparent as
the nature of my invention is better understood 40
for which purpose, reference will be had to the
following speci?cation and claims ‘and the ac
companying drawings, wherein I have illustrated
only a few of the various forms of display devices
in which my invention may be practiced, and in 45

It is to be noted that the lines of cut designated
30 are, in the illustrated form of the invention,
'
Referring speci?cally to the drawings, and par
ticularly to Figures 1 to 4, inclusive, the reference
character A designates‘ a blank of any type of
foldable material. One material which I have
found highly satisfactory, particularly in the
formation of display devices, is cardboard or
heavy paper.
The blank is out along a plurality of lines of
out designated 30. These lines of cut 30 divide the
blank into two sections B and C. Intersecting
the lines of cut 39 there are crease or score lines
31 and these crease or score lines connect the
ends of certain of the lines of cut. In the present
illustration of the invention, the crease or score
larly disposed with respect to each other and to the 45
lines of cut and extend radially from the point D
‘in the drawings.
By this arrangement and construction of parts
the two sections are capable of axial movement
relative to each other to position them in spaced
planes, as illustrated in Figure 3, and further,
the two sections are always connected by integral
connecting members which are integral with both
sections and which provide spacers to maintain
55
the sections in their spaced relation.
In'Figure 5 I have illustrated a modi?ed form
of my invention in which the arcuate or curved
lines of cut are arranged in an oval formation,
as distinguished from a circular formation, as in
the heretofore described form. In this form of
the invention the crease or score lines are radial,
as in the heretofore described form, and the two
sections of the blank are movable axially with re
lation to each other to position them in spaced
planes at the same time maintaining theintegral
connection of the connecting members with said
two sections.
In Figures 6 through 9, inclusive, I have shown
another adaptation of the principle and in the
said ?gures the blank A is divided into the two 70
sections B and C by lines of cut designated 40, ll,
42, 43. The reference numeral 44 designates
crease or score lines which divide the blank into
connecting members 45 which are integrally con
nected to the sections B and C. I There is a slight 75
2,118,432
difference in this form of the invention as com
pared with the form heretofore described in that
the crease or score lines 44 do not intersect lines
of cut as in said previously described form but
do instead, terminate at points spaced along the
lines of cut. The manner in which the blank is
cut in that form illustrated in Figures 6 to 9, in
clusive, provides sections 41, which sections are
herein depicted in simulation of packages of
10 articles such as cigarettes.
In this form of the invention the two sections
B and C are relatively movable in an axial direc
tion to throw them in spaced planes and at the
same time maintain them in integrally connect
ing relation, and while I have illustrated these
sections 41 as simulating packages of cigarettes,
it is obvious that by varying the shape or direc
tion of the lines of out, other articles may be
formed and the invention is therefore, not to be
20 limited to any particular formation of out no!‘
to provide articles of any speci?c type.
For example, in Figures 10 through 12, I have
shown a form of the invention in which letters
such as 50 are cut from the section B of the
blank and are integrally connected with the in~
ner section C thereof by connecting elements 5|.
To provide this type of device, the blank A is out
along the lines 52 and creased or scored along
the lines 53 and 54 to divide the blank respec
30 tively into the inner and outer sections C and B,
letters and connecting elements. In this form of
the invention I have shown a suitable base or
other support 58, and to prevent the appearance
of open spaces, I have provided the entire device
35 with a backing sheet or the like 59. The base
58 and the backing sheet 59 are, however, not
necessary to the operation or construction of this
device and are merely added to illustrate the fact
that the device may be suitably supported and
that the spaces caused by the ornamental sections
displaced from the main body may be hidden or
rendered less obvious.
In each of Figures 13 through 22 there is added
a feature not disclosed in those forms of the
invention heretofore discussed, and this feature
will now be described.
It will be noted by reference to these ?gures
that the entire blank is not circular in form. It
is obvious that when constructed in circular form
50 as set forth in Figures 1 to 12, inclusive, axial
movement of the two or more sections does not
necessarily change their relation other than posi
tioning them in spaced planes. However, when
the entire device is of less than circular form, for
example, semi-circular, axial movement of the
sections relative to each other to throw them into
different planes would give an uneven line along
the bottom since, if the bottom line were straight,
on one side the bottom edge of the section would
be moved beyond the bottom edge of the adjacent
section and on the opposite side it would be moved
above the bottom edge of the adjacent section.
Therefore, in laying out such a device the blank
is cut and creased or scored so that a greater
65 portion thereof is positioned upon one side of a
center line so that as the sections are moved rela
tive to each other in an axial direction into spaced
planes, they will even up along their bottom
edges. This is illustrated in Fgures 13 through 19
of the drawings.
'
For example, by reference to Figure 13 the
blank is substantially semi-circular, its radius
line being designated by the reference character
60. By-reference to Figure 13 it will be seen that
75 the greater portion of the blank is disposed to the
3
right of a center line. However, when the two
sections are moved axially the sections will attain
a straight line designated by the reference char
acter 65 in Figure 15 and the device will be sub
stantially semi-circular in form.
In Figure 14 I have illustrated to an ex
aggerated degree the fact that there is, in all
forms of the invention as illustrated, a slight
bowing of the blank. This results from the fact
that the crease or ‘score lines are radial and
emanate from a common point, and consequently, 10
the farther from this point they are located, the
greater the space between them, and since they
radiate and are therefore angularly disposed, the
center portion of the device, or that portion
closely adjacent the point from which the crease 15
or score lines emanate, is naturally narrower
than at points more remote therefrom, and inas
much as these lines constitute the lines on which '
the folding takes place, it necessarily throws the
two sections in angularly disposed spaced planes 20
as illustrated in said Figure 14.
In Figures 13 to 15, inclusive, the device com
prises five sections, namely, 10, ‘H, 12, 13, and ‘H.
The sections ‘I0, 12, and 14, are formed from 25
the main body portion of the blank, while the
sections H and 13 are in this instance, in the
form of letters, which letters are connected to
the next adjacent section to that from which
they are formed by connecting members 16 30
formed by crease or score lines ‘I1 upon which
they fold to permit of the sections 10, .12, and
14 moving in the spaced planes. In this form of
the invention the sections ‘H and 13 may be
other than letters if desired.
Also in this form of the invention I provide a 35
supporting base which consists of two sections 19
and 80. The section 19 is preferably an integral
part of the blank while the section 80 is a separate
piece pasted or otherwise secured to the blank in
40
such a manner that when the blank is folded,
the section 19 and a portion of the section 80
will be positioned in front of the blank while a
portion of the section 80 will be positioned behind
the blank, and these sections 19, 80, and BI will
form a suitable support for the device in this set 45
up form.
'
In Figures 16 and 1'7 I have illustrated a device
formed from a rectangular blank which consists
of two sections 90 and 9!. From one of these
sections, letters 92 which, of course, may take 50
other forms, are cut from one section of the
blank and connected to the other section of the
blank by connecting members 93 similar to those
heretofore mentioned. It will be noted by refer
ence to Figure 16 that the section 9| extends be 55
low the bottom line 94 of the blank as at 95 and
that the said section 9| also extends inwardly oi’
the side 96 of the blank as at 91. This is done
so that when the two sections 90 and 9| are
moved axially with relation to each other as by 60
moving the section Si in the direction of the
arrow 98 in Figure 16, the bottom sides and edges
will be straight and the entire device will take
on a true rectangular form. The portions 95 and
65
99 may or may not be removed and if left in
position upon the blank may form a suitable sup
port therefor to hold it in display position.
In Figures 18 through 22 I have shown an
arrangement whereby the device may be em
ployed for supporting articles, the articles being
mounted or carried within pockets which are
formed when the two sections of the blank are
moved axially with relation to each other.
Referring to the above mentioned ?gures, the
2,118,482
blank consists of an outer-section I00 and an
inner section IOI. These sections are connected
together by connecting elements I02 which are
formed by crease or score lines I03, the sections
IOI being formed by lines‘ of cut I04. It will be
noted that in this form of the device the bottom
edge of the major central portion of the blank
Jwhich is designated I00 is angularly disposed so
that when the section IN is moved in the direc
10 tion of the arrow H0 in Figure 18, the bottom
eiiges of the two sections will move into aline
ment with each other providing a straight bot
tom edge III for the blank as illustrated in
Figure 19. This construction provides pockets or
15 the like ‘I I2 which may receive various articles
such as actual packages of cigarettes or any other
articles which it may be desired to display, and
if the blank is cut, as illustrated in Figure 18, and
folded along the bottom line designated I06 in
20 said ?gure, there will be provided a portion II5
which will act as a support for the device to re
tain it in display position.
Referring to Figures 20 through 22, substan
tially the same construction as that illustrated in
25 Figures 18 through 20 is provided in a rectangu
lar blank. In this form of the invention the
blank consists of two sections I20 and HI which
are connected together by connecting elements
I22, the blank being cut along the lines I23 and
30 creased 0r scored along the lines I24 to provide
these several sections, as best illustrated in Figure’
22. This construction provides pockets or the
like for the reception of articles to be displayed,
a tooth brush, designated I25 in Figure 22 being
shown by way of illustration, which articles will
be held in display position and will also serve
to maintain the two sections I20 and I2I of the
blank in position in spaced planes.
In Figures 23 and 24 I have illustrated still a
40 further modified form of the invention in which
the blank is divided into three sections I30, I3I,
and I32. This form of the invention is substan
tially the same as that illustrated in Figures 1
to 4 of the drawings except that in that form
45 illustrated in Figures 23 and 24 there are two
circular series of cut lines designated I50 and I5I
arranged one within the other in concentric rela
tion. The ends of the lines of cut in each circular
instead of curved or of irregular from, the forma
tion or shape of these lines not being important
except to attain the desired design.
It will be noted that in each instance‘, the de
vice, when in its knocked down form, has all of
its sections which are integrally connected in the
same plane. This is due to the fact that all sec
tions are cut from a single blank and are dis
posed within the con?nes of said blank and are
integrally connected. However, when the device 10
is to be set up, the several sections'are moved
into spaced planes and they can be again moved
into the same plane in order to provide a ?at
' blank.
Such a construction renders the manufacture 15
of certain devices of which display devices, pic
ture frames, article holders, are but a few, rela
tively cheap and simple and also provides for
the folding or knocking down of such devices into
a relatively thin structure, thus greatly facilitat
ing their storage and transportation. Further
more, the invention eliminates entirely all in
tricacies in the setting up of the device since it
is only necessary to move the members relatively
to each other in an axial direction and the device 25
automatically moves to its set up position or, if
in set up position and such movement is imparted
to the device, it will automatically move to its
folded position requiring no special knowledge or
skill upon the part of the operator.
‘
may be set up or knocked down at will. Further
more, the invention permits of a wide ?eld of dec
oration, since, depending upon the degree of axial
movement given the members, portions of both
sides of the blank from which the article is formed
may be moved in positionto be visible from either
‘side thereof,
While in the present embodiment of the inven
tion the device has been disclosed only as a dis- 45
play device, it is obvious that it has many other
uses and the invention is not to be limited to the
as heretofore described, and this form of the
formation of such devices but may be employed
in the manufacture of various other articles.
Having thus described the invention, what is
invention will position the three sections I30, I3I,
claimed as new, is:
series are connected by crease or score lines I52,
and I32 in three different planes when the sec
tions are moved relatively in axial direction.
In Figure 25 the device is constructed in exact
55 ly the same manner as that in Figures 1 through
4. However, in ‘Figure 25 of the drawings the
section C has been rotated axially to such an ex
tent that the connecting members, which are,
in said ?gure, designated I10, move to such a
60 position that their reverse face is brought into
view upon that face of the blank being viewed.
This is accomplished merely by moving the sec
tions axially with relation to each other through
a greater distance in Figure 25 than has been
65 done in Figures 1 through 4. It will be obvious
that when the device is constructed in this man
ner portions of both sides of the blank are visible
from either side thereof and this construction and
arrangement of parts allow for a great latitude
in the ornamentation of the device.
It will be noted that in each of the forms of
the invention, as herein illustrated, the lines of
out are curved or of irregular form. It is to be
understood, however, that this is not necessary
75 since these lines might also, if desired, be straight
30
From the foregoing it is apparent that the
present invention provides a new and improved
method of cutting, creasing or scoring and fold
ing cardboard whereby articles having integrally
connected sections in different planes may be 35
constructed from a single blank of material and
1. An article formed from a single blank of
foldable material cut and scored to provide a plu
rality of integrally connected sections within the
con?nes of the blank and to permit of relative 65
axial movement of said integrally connected sec—
tions to position them in spaced planes.
2. A blank of foldable material out along a
plurality of relatively short arcuate lines arranged
in a circular series to divide the blank into two 60
integrally connected sections, straight crease or
score lines intersecting said arcuately cut lines
and providing lines of fold upon which the sec—
tions are relatively movable into spaced relation,
and connecting elements integrally connecting
said sections and holding the sections in spaced
relation, said connecting elements being de?ned
by said arcuate cut lines and the straight crease
or score lines which intersect them.
3. A blank of foldable material cut along a
plurality of relatively short lines arranged in a
circular series to divide the blank into two in
tegrally connected sections, and a plurality of
radial crease or score lines intersecting said
arcuate lines and providing lines of fold upon
2,113,432
which the sections are relatively movable into
spaced relation.
4. A blank of foldable material out along a
plurality of relatively short arcuate lines ar
ranged in a circular series to divide the blank
into two integrally connected sections, and a plu
rality of radial crease or scores lines intersect
ing said arcuate lines and providing lines of fold
upon which the sections are relatively movable
10 into spaced relation, said radial crease or score
lines emanating from the axial center of the cir
cular series of relatively short arcuate cut lines.
5. A blank of foldable material out along a
plurality of relatively short lines and creased
15 or scored along a plurality of lines intersecting
said lines of out, said lines of out and said crease

tions and connecting elements integrally con
necting said sections, the crease or score lines,
providing lines, oi. ‘fold’ upon which‘ the'section's
are relatively movable to position portion of both
sides of the blank into a position of visibility upon
